    The SAM database stands for Security Account Manager and its stores the password for all the local users on windows system. It is also called as SAM database. You can use many tools that can help you to retrieve password from the SAM database such as Ophcrack. You need to boot from live CD or from different OS than the OS for which you are trying to retrieve the SAM file as the file is locked for the running OS and could not be accessed.

    Actually, the passwords will be stored in Plain Text or at least encoded ones, which can be decoded, as the Google Chrome uses your login password as the Master Password! 😀 Check out the Chrome source code to find something by which you can get the password in plain text during runtime of the OS! 😉
